Known Problems

The cup holder in the front center arm rest is flimsy and may break, making it impossible to close the cup holder assembly.

The rear self-leveling suspension is problematic and very expensive to repair. A retrofit kit is available to convert this suspension back to conventional shock absorbers and springs.

To avoid excess play and wear problems, the front wheel bearings should be periodically inspected and serviced.

Engine oil leaks in several different areas are common. I may be necessary to clean the affected area and recheck to determine the exact cause of the leak.

A growling noise may be noticed on deceleration from higher speeds. This type of noise is commonly caused by a bearing failure in the rear differential. Replacement of the rear differential is often necessary to correct this problem.

The brake pressure accumulator, a component of the antilock brake system, frequently fails. This may cause a stiff brake pedal, forcing the driver to apply excess pedal pressure to slow down or stop the vehicle.

The upper bushings on the front shock absorbers are prone to failure and may produce a rattling/jingling noise as the car is driven over bumps.

The front spindle the wheel bearing is mounted on may wear requiring replacement.


A defective HVAC blower motor, blower motor controller, or relay/micro switch in the control panel may cause the heater/AC blower motor not to work. Diagnoses may be required to determine the exact cause of the fault.

The exterior door handles are of poor quality; they frequently break or do not offer enough leverage to open the door from the outside.
